At Elmwood we desire to create an environment where people of all ages can join in the worship of our great God, and that includes our kids! Depending on the ages of your children, we offer a variety of options:
Nursery care is available throughout the entire service.
Children’s Church (Preschool and Elementary):
Children will be dismissed for Children’s Church following the greeting time (around 11AM). They will meet their teacher in the back of the sanctuary. (Just look for the red Elmwood Kids shirts.) From there, they will head to the classrooms and engage in a lesson that is both fun and Christ-centered. The curriculum we use for preschoolers is Bible in Life, and for elementary kids we currently use the New City Catechism.
Middle and High School (6th-12th grade):
As kids get older, we want to acknowledge that they have genuine questions and are wrestling with real decisions in their day to day life. While we believe that parents are a child’s first line of discipleship, we want to supplement that with a loving and authentic community. All children in 6th-12th grade will go through the New City Catechism, with various degrees of depth, as well as participate in their own biblically based small groups where they can get into God’s word and develop gospel informed relationships. Each small group is led by a facilitator.
